and general election. that took limits off. president obama and mitt romney racing record amounts of money themselves -- raising record amounts of money themselves. seems like the height of irony. if the money would have been spent on some other purpose, what might have happened. host: how much each candidate spent. that is just the two candidates. guest: the final accounting is not in yet. host: there is another story from "time business." $6 billion invested in this economy. did we see a boost in the sluggish economy? guest: christmas in september for the television stations in some of battleground states. stations were cutting back on programming so they could fit in all the advertising. we have tried to get a handle on the tv ads and have created a database which pulls in the advertising that is not registered at the federal communications commission. it is the top 50 markets. we are trying to pull that together and have asked volunteers to go to some of the uncovered markets and help us collect the other advertising. there are these concentrated pockets of spending in these communitie
accounting, if you will, to are reduce your taxes so you're only paying 14 or 15%, remember, mitt romney who made $20 million, he was only paying effectively a tax rate of 14 or 15 because most of that money came from investment income interest, if you will, as opposed to salary which would be much higher, 35%. there are creative ways to do it but let's see in the math adds up and you make a dent on reducing the deficit. >> all right. wolf blitzer, thank you. do appreciate it. i like to give a plug to your show. tune in at 4:00 p.m. eastern today, "the situation room," only on cnn. thank you, wolf. >> thank you. >>> i have some stuff i want to bring to light. we have a couple more nuggets coming to light in the david petraeus scandal. a friend of the suddenly disgraced cia chief and former four-star general says that general petraeus never gave paula broadwell classified information and has not had affairs with any other women. and i will suggest, once again, even though the local newspaper suggests that indeed there's another person who happens to be a woman, separately this friend, who has
republican who wouldn't be willing to put more money on the table. i have to ask you about the president's strategy brifg in business leaders. this is a smart strategy and getting some of those people that many aassume would support romney and maybe donated to him, wall street fellows, who could be helpful to the president now. >> there's a big movement among some business leaders to push for any deal on the fiscal cliff between now and the end of the year. although they worry about the prospect of increased taxes, they're worried about the prospect over the fiscal cliff and the damage to the u.s. economy. there are business groups raising money to run tv ads, for example, pushing for congress to come to a deal here. so the president has an ally there in some business folks that he maybe didn't have on the campaign trail now that attention is turning to this fight. it's simply good politics for the president to meet with the progressive folks and the ceos and as many people as he can so when they get to the point of a deal, he can say, look, i listened to all perspectives here. >> we hea
